    Illustration by Danielle Callaghan
Danielle is a freelance illustrator and artist based in Edinburgh. Originally from the North Yorkshire Moors, Danielle is a recent graduate of Edinburgh College of Art receiving a BA (Hons) in Illustration, 2013.

Danielle’s illustrations stem from equal measures of fascination and concern for the natural world. Endless inspiration is found in flora and fauna, and she especially loves drawing birds, insects and deer. Everything is hand drawn and you will find plenty of detail and use of muted colours. Danielle's chosen mediums are a fine pen, Caran D'ache crayon with a touch of digital. 

Using illustration, bookmaking and imagination Danielle aims to highlight conservation causes but at the same time, celebrate what makes nature so wonderful.

Danielle is the artist in residence for the Edinburgh Royal Military Tattoo, 2013. This year the tattoo is celebrating the theme of 'Our Wonderful World', tying into the year of Natural Scotland.

Danielle is part of Moonko and you can find her work in the beautiful MoonKo boutique in Sheffield.
